We have set up a Demonstration High School and District for you see first hand how Total Registration works.
There are two parts to the demonstration site:
Please visit the Demo High School registration site at www.TotalRegistration.net/PSAT/000011 and try the registration form. This form can be fully customized to your school's colors and needs. If you enter a valid email while registering, you will be emailed a Registration Confirmation just as the students would.
This site was very helpful! Our state has added new assessments and it helps that I am able to help the other counselors with those and am not spending all of my time on paperwork for AP exams.
I have used Total Registration for three years now to manage our AP exams and I honestly can't imagine doing it any other way. I find that my questions are answered very quickly and the support team is superb. It truly helps organize the many details one incurs when dealing with multiple exams and many students.
I can't imagine doing the registration any other way now. It was scary for my anal self to jump on board and give up some control, but I have now done it for 2 years and will never go back. The biggest thing was not having to handle the money in house. Out of 485 exams, 123 were fee waiver students where some of those students have limited access to credit cards. The mail in system for those students was very easy and all of the students were serviced easily. Our bookkeeper was very happy to not have a ton of students coming in separately to pay! It also helped us stick to deadlines!
This year we elected to use an on-line registration site (totalregistration.net). This is a GREAT site. The kids pre-select as part of registration which pre-admin they want to sign up for. The kids register online and all the exam totals, student info, alternate exams, waivers, accommodations are all compiled via this program. You have to pay for the site but this has been a huge success and a relief for tracking all the information. The site was linked to our homepage.
All coordinators need to do is an initial set-up and the rest is done....Very smooth, Very Easy .....The data collection is automatic When you need to order exams, you can print rosters from the site and or just exam totals.
From what I hear from the past AP Coordinator, pre-registration used to be a giant pain. Thank you so much for providing another option!
